Lija Greenseid, her husband Andrew and their son & daughter are recently back to their Minnesota home after almost a year of whirlwind travel. The Greenseids always enjoyed travel and they wanted to show their children, Arija & Adam, more of the world. They picked up and spent 9 months traveling internationally. Since Arija has type 1 diabetes, this took a lot of planning, extra supplies and learning as they went. Lija shares their story.

Also this week, as we follow Bike Beyond all summer long, Stacey talks to Sid Sharma. Sid was diagnosed with type 1 two years ago, at age 27. He's already biked from London to Paris and is excited to travel through America with the team.

Saying "You always find a way," he wants to inspire us to get out and have fun without fear as we travel with diabetes. Jeremy shares why he's back home in the US to travel the parks, after living and traveling abroad for many years. He also explains why he's made his trip a fund raiser for JDRF.
